How to wear the color of the season in five ways



Hear, hear: the dawn of a new video series!


When it comes to the general idea of fashion trends, people tend to take one of three paths: they follow trends, don't care much for them or hate the idea completely. This aversion to seasonal ins and outs may be rooted in logic: After all, what good is your “personal style” if you allow the industry and coincidental similarities across runways dictate it for you? Wonder Plays Dress-up is here to clear the air—trends aren't all bad. Instead of diminishing individuality, they can help fuel it. They exist to be tried, to be had fun with and to be left tucked into the pages of sartorial history if they don't quite harmonize with your look. All in the name of fun and fashion, right?


In the spotlight for our first episode is one of S/S 2019's most popular, show-stopping colors: yellow. Click play on the video below to discover five fresh ways to sport the color of the season and scroll a little further for an idea on where to cop the pieces!




It's going to be a while until coordinates and boiler suits go out of style. Sport a stark yellow turtleneck under a printed shirt-and-trouser ensemble for an unexpected pop of color.


Yellow ribbed turtleneck, ZARA, plaid coordinated button-down shirt and trousers, BENJ ROGANDO, white Falcon sneakers, ADIDAS ORIGINALS, black cat-eye sunglasses, UNDO.

Don't rush into the trend—ease into the palette with a little print and texture action. A plaid-meets-tweed situation layered over a darker-colored inner shirt is a good place to start.

Everything in moderation, even trends and colors. Work yellow into your wardrobe incrementally with a colored sleeve or a peek at an undershirt.

 Accessories? Yes please. Inject color and spice up an outfit with a scene-stealer of a bag.


Cropped hoodie and printed tie-waist trousers, ZARA, oversized plaid blazer, BERSHKA, black and white Falcon sneakers, ADIDAS ORIGINALS, yellow transparent bag, FXXKING RABBITS AT CASE STUDY ATELIER

Fearless brights aren't the gateway to this trend—pastels are just as spring/summer-appropriate! Create contrast against muted yellows with rich blues and dark reds.

Blue sleeveless cropped knit top, ZARA. Pastel blue pointed-toe slingback heels and burgundy box bag, CHARLES & KEITH.
